how to make custom button redirect to a page using different page layout

We have a custom object My_Cases which has a status__c field and the other fields. We want to have a close case button in the detail page of My_case__c, when click it, we want to go to the edit page of My_Case__c with Closed selected in status__c, and only a few fields shown up which some of them are read only. Actually we have created a closed case page layout for it. But I don't know how to call it from my button. Do I have to make my own VF for this function?
Yes you need to create your own VF page and call it from the button.

Page layout is tied with record type and you cannot call page layout from a button
